Scripture:   Psalm 26:2 NIV  Test me, Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind; 

Observation:   David was asking the Lord to examine his heart and mind.  The heart is the seat of our emotions.  What makes us joyful?  What makes us really glad?  What puts a permanent smile on our face?   The mind is the seat of our thinking and choosing.  How many of our thoughts center on God?  When making decisions, how often do we consider what would best please God?             

Application:    In Navy boot camp and in Hospital Corps School, we regularly opened our living quarters to inspections.   My heart and my mind are the living quarters for my inner life.    

Prayer:   Lord, I invite you to inspect my inner living quarters.     Amen
